Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream


Ok, I know this is a little late in coming, but these are the beautiful strawberries from our garden {almost 2 months ago}! Having fresh strawberries, warm from the sun, is like nothing else on earth! We ate most of them, right in our garden but managed to save a few for some great fresh strawberry recipes. This ice cream is from the Ben and Jerry's cook book. It just screams summer to me, you don't even cook the berries so they keep that amazing fresh flavor. I just LOVED the color too!

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/3 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 a lemon

2 eggs 3/4 cup sugar
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup milk
2 t vanilla

Combine the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Prepare the ice cream by whisking the eggs until light and fluffy. Whisk in the sugar until completely blended, about 1 minute. Pour in the cream, milk, and vanilla and mix until blended. Next mash the strawberries to desired consistency and then add them to the ice cream base. Transfer to an ice cream maker and follow manufacturers instructions. This will make a little more than 1 quart.
